Pontifical Mass Coram Summo Pontifice, Sistine Chapel

Since we're on a bit of a look at historical photos these days it seems, here are a couple of old images we shared awhile ago from the time of Pope Pius XI in the Sistine Chapel within the context of a Pontifical Mass coram Summo Pontifice. (As an aside, I am always impressed by how stunning the altar and throne look here with their canopies and tapestries. It would be wonderful to see these restored to use.)
